Since the BMW 4 Series took over for the 3 Series Coupe, both the 3 and 4 Series models have shared virtually identical styling. For 2018, BMW is separating the 4 Series from its sedan sister with mild updates.
Up front, 4 Series buyers will find new, standard bi-LED headlights, an unbroken central intake that gets larger toward its outer edges and gloss-black-finish surrounds. Around back, there are swoopier taillights graphics. Sure, there aren’t tons of changes, but there’s enough to give the 4 Series a distinct look.
Also new are two exterior colors: Sunset Orange and Snapper Rocks Blue. Four new rim designs roll in too, ranging from 18 to 19 inches.
While there are no powertrain changes, there are a few performance tweaks. This upgrades include stiffer suspension, advanced damping technology and upgraded steering in the coupe and Gran Coupe models.
Inside, there is a new menu on the optional navigation system that includes six large tile icons spread over two pages, and drivers can arrange these tiles as they prefer. M4 models will gain new-look, illuminated M emblems on the front seats.
The 430i and 440i xDrive models will be available in coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe in March 2017. Pricing will come at a later date.
Stay tuned for updates.
